is saying in an environment where some of the folks are honest, they want to make up revenue, you have to find it. we are cutting defense spending. we were talking about infrastructure, potholes, state funding. >> you have to make sacrifices. >> in the previous segment. the people who are serious want to pick up the amendment. if there's any room to maneuver or wiggle, i don't think the way they've approached the tax code gives me a lot of real faith. capital gains is an important area. by the way, to abby's point, you want to know a big idea, hold up or down votes on the floor. the speaker can put each one of these out. what i think happens here is similar to what happens on immigration. there's some piecemeal conversations but you can't actually get a vote on what i think are the most important parts. the capital gains thing, i'll end here, it's a problem because today's wealthy americans make more money through stock dividends than were before in history. >> right. >> our tax code has not caught up with that. you were alluding to that. if we don't deal with that, and i think deal wi
environment. that they're working on a report about the cia's detention and interrogation programs. >> the long beach plus telegram says former secretary of state hillary clinton is comparing russia's actions in ukraine to nazi germany. -- places like czechoslovakia and romania and other places. hitler kept saying they're not being treated right. i must go and protect my people, and that's what's gotten everybody so nervous. reporter karen robes meeks at the event, confirmed the quote. says >> the ceo of general motors is launching an internal review ataunching issue how they delayed reporting a defective switch. the cars involved in the recall are from 2007 before. >>> and the candidates facing off to be the next governor of d the "sta texas. h the lone star state held the first statewide primary tuesday. republicans chose greg abbott to succeed rick perry. wendy davis coasted to the democratic nomination. >>> it's 7:19.7:19 ahead, the $100 million bet to legalize gambling and what it hat may mean for the mob. first, time to check your local weather. >> announcer:
, look, in a hyper partisan environment where he has to run for re-election, an issue like this can be polarized. any issue around race, as you know, wolf, sends people to their full rise corners. the last thing the president wants to do when he's running for re-election is to have a country more polarized. i think the beauty of this time now is you can have more risky conversations that are important for moving this country forward right now in his second term. so i'm thankful that he did. >> i want to play another excerpt from the president's powerful speech. cornell and don, both of you listen to this. >> no excuses. government and philanthropy, faith-based communities, we've got to help you knock down some of the barriers that you experience. that's what we're here for. but you've got responsibilities, too. and i know you can meet the challenge. many of you already are, if you make the effort. it may be hard, but you will have to reject the cynicism that the circumstances of your birth or societies injustices necessarily defines you and your future. it will take courage but you'
is that i grew up in an environment that was a little more forgiving. >> that was the president today being quite frank and personal about his past. before nousing a new initiative that deems to help the would be barack obamas around the country. speaking to a pack room that included the parents of trayvon martin, al sharpton to bill o'reilly, he described his my brother's keeper initiative. he will be pushing associations to help young help of color overcome the profound effects of racism to meet their potential. he made his case in terms of how it would benefit not just the boys in question but the nation as a whole. >> the fact too many of them are falling by the wayside. dropping out. unemployed. involved in negative behavior, going to jail. cycles of homelessness breeds violence and mistrust. and our country is a little less than what we know it can be. so we need to change the statistics. not just for the sake -- and boys but for the sake of america's future. >> for most of his five plus years in office the president has strenuously and stood justly avoided framing any of his policies
to keep it that way. driven to preserve the environment, csx moves a ton of freight nearly 450 miles on one gallon of fuel. what a day. can't wait til tomorrow. >>> america's longest war may be coming to an end sooner than expected. the president ord ed the pentagon to draw up plans for a complete withdrawal from afghanistan by the end of the year. joining me now, jack jacobs. can i ask you this. is this posturing or does the u.s. really want to do this? >> i think we really want to do it but we shouldn't discount the fact that our politicians have a policy to think before they think, drawing lines in the sand we never tend to reinforce. so some of this is posturing but by the end of the day if we can't reach an arrangement with karzai, we're leaving. we are going to do that. we have areas surrounding afghanistan we can do some operations but i think the intention is to get out. >> a reporter wrote yesterday that u.s. officials told her that al qaeda is planning a comeback in afghanistan. some of that is politically motivated. how concerned are you that that is a reality. >> i think
was saying, i want to be fair to the russian people consuming this in that controlled news environment, we're not saying that if you're buying the putin view of this, you know, that that's just -- you're just being dumb. i mean, there's a lot of ways in which he presents this that can sound reasonable if you hear nothing else. >> absolutely. and this has been one of the most amazing things of the putin project since he's come to power. he's created this kind of alternate reality. at first he did it domestically. when you're in russia, it's incredibly. the talk of democracy, the posters on the streets, the people out at also ryes, the lines at election booths. these are things that the kremlin orchestrates very, very carefully. this is the first time he's moved beyond his borders to do it there. so this is a very controlled campaign. it's a theatre. >> james welcome back to the show. thanks for joining us again. >>> coming up, vladimir putin's political machine. and later, breaking news from texas. wendy davis has become the first woman since anne richards to win a primary for governor of t
with the veterans' bill. that's the simple truth. what i hope very much is in this extremely partisan environment the fact that we have a congress that is virtually dysfunctional. i would hope that on this issue of supporting those people who sacrifice so much for their country, supporting their families that we could for this moment, at least, rise above this absurd level of partisanship. and i hope that we will. i hope we can get some republican support for the bill. >> one final question, senator. assuming the iran sanctions part is stripped out and not part of the bill, there are some oh who are worried about the cost of these expanded benefits for u.s. military veterans, health benefits, education benefits, social service benefits, all sorts of other benefits. and they say the country can't afford that right now. to which your reply is? >> if you can't afford to take care of your veterans, don't go to war. these people are bearing the brunt of what war is about. we have a moral obligation to support them. >> simple answer to the point. senator, thanks very much for coming in. you'll keep us
of a father in young african-american families, especially in urban environments. but i think it's inescapable that he was more retiscent on these issues in the first term than in the second term. again, there are reasons for that and you don't want to be seen as the african-american president. you want to be seen as the president of the united states but i think we are seeing a certain freedom that the president is expressing today in terms of what he wants to talk about, don. >> reporter: are you talking to me? >> yeah. >> reporter: jake, he is the african-american president. he's an african-american president. he's a president of all people but, again, he has a responsibility as president to help everyone but he is a black man. and as i said, he understands the issues that we as african-americans face more than any other president that we have had they used to call bill clinton the first black president just for fun but, yes, i think he has more of a freedom. listen, in his first term he didn't do that much about gay rights and gay marriage and it started to happen in the second term. he ha
myself in these young men. and the only difference is that i grew up in an environment that was a little bit more forgiving. so when i made a mistake the consequences were not as severe. >> joining us now is the host of "the reid report," my friend and colleague joy reid. "i got high." those words will be discussed a lot. we are 22 years after bill clinton said i did not inhale on the campaign trail. of course this isn't a discussion about drugs as it is so much a discussion about the president, his candor, his ownership of his own history, and fundamentally question of race and how the president is i think almost opening a new chapter, one that beegan with trayvon martin, a new chamter about his own cultural heritage and who he wants to be in his last three years of his presidency. what did you make of that? >> i don't think we've ever seen this much of the interior life of any president of the united states as we've seen with this president both because of the autobiography he wrote where he really dug into his own growing up, his own attitudes toward race, very candid about drug use,
was i could see myself in these young men. and the only difference is that i grew up in an environment that was a little bit more forgiving. so when i made a mistake, the consequences were not as severe. i had people who encourage me, not just my mom and grandparents, but wonderful teachers and community leaders. and they would push me to work hard and study hard and make the most of myself. and if i didn't listen, they said it again. and if i didn't listen, they said it a third time, and they would give me second chances and third chances. they never gave up on me. and so i didn't give up on myself. i told these young men my story then, and i repeat it now because i firmly believe that every child deserves the same chances that i have. this is an issue of national importance. it's as important as any issue that i work on. it's an issue that goes to the very heart of why i ran for president. because if america stands for anything, it stands for the idea of opportunity for everybody. the notion that no matter who you are or where you came from or the circumstances in which you are born,
environment. the only thing that's protecting him right now is this giant board of other -- with other names on the scandal sheet. so it's hard to spend enough time just on what a scandal samson is. >> and this is a question that's been raised in this whole process. when david wildstein's lawyer trying to get his bills paid. he also alluded to conflicts of interest between port authority commissioners. it's very unclear what he's saying but it seems he might be hinting at more about david samson. we've seen several conflicts come about david samson. a paz station in harrison. we' seen multiple examples. >> every breath samson takes at the port authority takes is a conflict of interest and christie knew that would be the case. he knew what his real job was. "up with steve kernacki." coming up, the republicans and ted cruz and the battle that never ends between them. and joy reid joins me to talk about the president's new initiative, my brother's keeper and the extraordinary comments the president made at the white house made today. and bill o'reilly will tell us why he doesn't want to be pres
with a bully in russia that more than willing to bully its way to decree alt the kind of government environment andal lie it wants in the ukraine, no matter what the ukrainian people want. we do need to be strong. i also think we need to make sure the ukrainians don't take any unnecessary pro tvocative acts. i would fully expect lavrov to be saying what he is, whether in fact they do that or whether they have a very different understanding of what their rights are in crimea where they have the large base, may be a very different story. >> congressman, do you anticipate that congress will approve more aid for ukraine? >> i think there would be strong bipartisan support for that. there are a lot of members on both sides of the aisle that realize, this is a critical battleground in the war of ideas and not only going to help determine what kind of future ukraine has, whether they can like their neighbor in poland, have a prosperous economy and open society or recede back to what russia is looking look, awe thor tear yan and we should do all we have but it will determine for those who live in russi
had this sort of disembodied environment where there was no real connection and people anecdotally were telling people, yeah, i was sitting on the brim for four hours, whatever. now you are hearing emergency phone calls that are directly related to the tie-up on the bridge and then you layer over top of that the political shenanigans of some really stupid people who decided to have fun and games at the expense of all those commuters and this thing takes on a whole different feel for people on the ground, which is why i think the poll numbers may shift a little bit more as these tapes get more airing and people hear that anguish and that anger on the bridge. that's gonna translate in poll numbers and that's something i know the christie people are going to be concerned about. >> you know, steve, the governor finally got a question or a couple of questions at the -- at his ask the governor forum earlier this week. and i want to play a little bit of sound from that because christie's tenacity has not abated at all. let's take a listen. >> i'm not gonna give into the hysteria of questi
that someone sees a gun on to how can we do this being least disruptive in a learning environment. and there's a lot of work to be done that lies ahead of us. >> there's one estimate that that work's going to cost over $2 million including retraining of police officers involved but now they're going to have to distinguish between good guns and bad guns on campus. where before all guns were bad on campus. greg, it seems to me that you might have some better educational purposes for that $2 million. >> well, yeah. and i think as a lot of letter writers have pointed out, i don't know nothing about guns, and i shouldn't have one. but with nine hours' training i too can become a hobbyist police officer and be authorized to bring a gun on campus and to use it according to my nine hours of training. i don't want vigilantes protecting me in my classroom. i think vigilante justice is best practiced at home. and i have nothing against it. just no, thanks, i don't need them to have guns if they're not trained officers of the law or have extensive experience. and people around them, professionals who wi

difference is that i grew up in an environment that was a little bit more forgiving. when i was their age, i was a lot like them. i didn't have ad in the house. and i was angry about it even though i didn't necessarily realize it at the time. i made bad choices. i got high without always thinking about the harm that it could do. groups that have had the odds stacked against them in unique ways that require unique solutions. groups who've seen fewer opportunities that have spanned generations. the worst part is that we become numb to these statistics. we're not surprised by them. we take them as the norm. we just assume this is an inevitable part of american life instead of the outrage that it is. [ applause ] >> and i -- and i believe the continuing struggles of so many boys and young men, the fact that too many of them are falling by the way side, dropping out, unemployed, involved in negative behavior, being pro filed. so we need to change the statistics. not just for the sake of the young men and boys, but for the sake of america's future. and that's -- that's why in the aftermath of the
